White House to host conference Thursday on how to tackle bullying

By Perry Bacon Jr.

The White House will spend much of Thursday taking on a problem usually reserved for parents, teachers and principals: bullying.

Administration officials, including President Obama, will speak about bullying and the importance of preventing it in a four-hour conference at the White House that will also include feedback from experts on bullying.

Obama spoke out against bullying in school in October after there was a series of suicides by gay teens across the country who had been teased or bullied.

Here is the president and Michelle Obama's preview of the event, which they posted on Facebook.

11:50am 03/10/11 watch the news at this minute and see what is going on in Wisconsin as a result of a bully named MOAMMAR WALKER. Wait until summer when the temp hits about 90 degrees and tempers really start to flare. Hile Walker needs to cut and run as America has spoken against him in every poll. I'm sure Faux has a poll showing him to be ohey. {MY PEOPLE LOVE ME, MY PEOPLE LOVE ME}

Be sure to invite Hile Walker and Hile Kasich as they are the top bullies in America today even though personally they are both "WHIMPS".

Maybe they could start in their own back yard, by telling their own hoards to stop using teabaggers to describe the tea partier?
The could talk to their unions in WI to be more civil when disagreeing with the Governor?
Check it out if you want to see bullying.

======================================
I wonder if the Tea Party members would attend the conference!

I hear the Gov. of Wisconsin has already turned down the invitation. He has a previous engagement with the "troublemakers" to plan invading the union protesters.
